Carlos Lopez-Cantera Criticizes 'Naiveté' of Obama Administration on Cuba
Cuban officials called President Barack Obama's visit to the country an "attack" on the foundation of the Communist-ruled country's history over the weekend, furthering strain between the U.S. and Cuba.
President Raul Castro called the U.S. "the enemy" in opening remarks to the party congress over the weekend, according to Reuters.
Those remarks and Obama's visit in March were the subject of harsh criticism from Florida Lieutenant Gov. and U.S. Senate hopeful Carlos Lopez-Cantera.
“The naiveté of the Obama Administration is shown through and through in the aftermath of President Obama’s trip to Cuba," Lopez-Cantera said. " Just weeks after the President went to Cuba to supposedly promote relations with the island on what he called a historic visit, the Castro regime is calling the United States an enemy.
Members of the Cuban-American community, Cuban dissidents and the Ladies in White all warned further concessions by the United States to Cuba would do nothing to improve international relations or the lives of the Cuban people.
Instead of listening to those on the ground, this Administration continues to jeopardize Americans’ security and make concessions to a Communist dictatorship that has always viewed the United States as an enemy, not an ally.
These comments serve as a yet another wakeup call to Americans about the dangerous path this Administration has us on, and a reminder that the United States must continue to maintain all sanctions on the Castro regime."
